Can identify 6 of the 8, (not 2 or 7). To choose one only I'll go for no 1, BOA.

Sorry - but it's not B-o-A

4: Swindon

3. Ryde Esplanade

Yes, and yes.   I have very poor connection just at the moment - at the extreme of the mobile phone signal.  Will fill in on the original when I get home, circa 1 hour.

5 Ryde Pier Head

Also correct

2 is the Jubilee clock outside Swindon Station.  Was formerly in the town centre.  It is also usually a few minutes out.
